The Charming Ladies of the Yi - 2019 Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra
Shen Yun Compositions
D.F. / arr. Junyi TanFor thousands of years, the people of the Yi ethnic group have lived in villages nestled in the terraced hills of southwest China. Known for their beautiful clothing and buoyant dance style, the Yi employ a wide range of instruments in their music. This musical tradition is showcased in this piece, with vibrant tunes played by the pipa supported by a series of pizzicato notes from the strings. Usually, such lively music would be accompanied by dancers wearing long, colorful skirts, as was the case in Shen Yun’s 2019 dance production.
